Below please find the top 10 APR-DRGs for each Arizona hospital based on the Federal
Fiscal Year 2012 AHCCCS inpatient managed care encounter data and fee-for-service claims
data. Not all hospitals had at least 10 different DRGs in their data. The table
displays the number of unique discharges, the average charge per discharge, and the
average payment per discharge. The payment amounts reflect the actual payments made
under the current AHCCCS inpatient tiered per diem payment methodology, but displays
the procedures grouped into the appropriate APR-DRG for comparison purposes.
(AHCCCS is transitioning to an APR-DRG methodology effective October 1, 2014). The data
excludes encounters and claims for psychiatric services, same-day discharges, $0 paid
claims, Medicare dual eligible members, transplant episodes and ungroupable DRGs.
